Those of us who live in close proximity to Blighty's have an illustrious and famous part-time neighbour. He is an Englishman too. His new Canadian home (one of his many residences around the World) has just been completed alongside highway 10 in Caledon just outside Orangeville. Last week we received a report that security was very visible around the fortified entrances to Elton John's hillside mansion - evidence that the main man himself may be in town. I checked his concert schedule, and he is indeed going to be performing in Canada and the United States during the next few weeks. We have a red carpet ready and waiting here at Blighty's; I am sure he will need some British nosh during his visit. If you are reading this Elton, there's a welcome waiting for you here old mate!
